Shakes or Wobbles problem
1999 Ford Falcon 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles
I have a Ford Falcon AU with 152,000 miles. When at a stop light, the car will vibrate. It doesn't shake the whole car, but it is noticeable, especially on the brake pedal and under my feet, and lightly on the steering wheel. The vibration also occurs as I press the brake pedal and the car is just about to reach a complete stop, and as it slows out of a stop as I release the brake pedal. But at driving speeds there is no vibration.
At first I thought it may be axle related because when I turn the wheel while stopped, the vibration goes away. But I'm afraid it may be engine related because when it's vibrating and then I put the car in neutral, the vibration stops.
The vibration doesn't happen every time I stop, but it is happening more often. And it always happens in the morning when I first drive the car and after the car has been parked for long periods of time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
